As the old saying goes, nothing is too much early or too late in learning something new and it seems like blockchain technology was one of its proof.
Giulio Rebuffo, an Italian 15-year-old kid, was reported as the youngest blockchain developer in the industry. According to B9lab, — an online platform that offers blockchain courses — Rebuffo is the youngest student that graduated with the course of Ethereum developer and now working on his Hyperledger Fabric certification.
As said by B9lab, they were amazed by Rebuffo’s skills and knowledge that he managed to have the same classes with his other older colleagues and then, later on, passed the final exam. B9lab also applauded the dedication of Rebuffo to finish the course even without enough knowledge with the system.
Rebuffo shared his life story with the article published on B9lab by mentioning that he was first ‘scared’ to study blockchain due to its complexity. However, his father became his dedication to continue pursuing it and ended up enjoying the course.
“Everything seemed very difficult at the start, but then I started to enjoy the course” Rebuffo said.
Unlike other teenagers who don’t like the concept of blockchain, Rebuffo as a 15-year-old kid admits that he felt strange as the youngest person in the class and looked at it as ‘inappropriate’. Although after he got his certification, Rebuffo started to feel like a real developer and became more satisfied and proud of his works.
Moreover, he also gave an insight into the things he experienced with the blockchain course. He explained that ‘everything was very hard’ with blockchain technology but as the time goes by, he learned to understand it deeper and begun to see it as an easy system.
“I remember that when I saw a mapping for the first time, I thought it was something really complicated, but in reality it isn’t difficult”
Teens Interested on Crypto
This is not the first time that a young millennial focuses on the concept of cryptocurrency in the market. As reported by CNBC, Erik Finman — a 19-year-old bitcoin millionaire — started his crypto fiasco since aged 12 after receiving a $1,000 gift from his grandmother. Now, he currently owns 401 bitcoins with a worth of over $4.4 million. On February, another young crypto tycoon named Eddy Zillan, was described as the ‘Wolf of the Crypto Street’ for making over $1 million in crypto with the age of 18.
With the teens having their way on the crypto stadium, people are beginning to see that teenagers easily adapt to the new system in technology; making them as great developers and the future of blockchain technology.
